Mirus Emerging Leader Program – Follow up with Sandeep VM

July 5, 2020 | People at Mirus Australia

Sandeep is an emerging / future leader at Mirus Australia and recently participated in the Mirus Emerging Leaders Program.

The program has been designed to nurture leadership capabilities, provide education and career development opportunities, and assist team members in becoming the best leader they can possibly be!

The program includes:

Module 1 – Understanding the Self

Module 2 – Influencing Others

Module 3 – Coaching and Driving Performance

Participants also complete course work in-between sessions including utilising our LinkedIn Learning program or reading specific articles to support our blended learning approach. Participants also complete an online HBDI assessment ** which is the foundation of Module 1.

As a follow up, we asked Sandeep:

(1) What is the biggest challenge facing you and/or leadership teams today?

Every day presents us with possibilities for change and different problems to handle, so being a situational leader is a challenge – you either have to see it coming or handle it on the fly because both things are inevitable.

(2) What advice would you give someone going into a leadership position for the first time? 

Be prepared to handle success and failure. Strive to make your team a success not you, when they shine, you shine, when they fail you fail. There is no “i” in the team.

(3) What are you going to do to ensure you continue to grow and develop as a leader? 

First would be continuous learning – To observe and learn from the experienced leaders around me and at the same time try to be authentic. Second would be to build resilience and the third would be to continuously practice effective communication.

The HBDI® is a powerful psychometric assessment that defines and describes the way you think and process information. It is built on Whole Brain® Thinking, a holistic and complete model for making decisions. This 120-question survey results in a profile of your preferred thinking styles.
